Pitman High School Student Wins Attendance Drive Car  

The Stanislaus County Office of Education (SCOE) and Modesto Toyota are pleased to announce that Ekjot Johal from Pitman High School is the winner of the 2024 Toyota Corolla.  On May 17, 2024, Modesto Toyota drove the new car to Pitman High School and SCOE’s Chief of Staff Jason Maggard announced the winning name during a student body assembly.

Johal and 49 contest finalists with great attendance were in the final running to receive the car. The Every Day Counts-Attendance Matters initiative brings awareness on the importance of daily school attendance, and offering a free car is an incentive for 32,000 high school students to attend school every day.

To be entered into the contest, a student must have had at least one month of perfect attendance to be eligible to participate. Each month of perfect attendance, earned an additional opportunity for entry into the contest.  (Perfect attendance means that the student has attended all class periods of all school days within the calendar month of August 2023 through mid-April 2024.) School districts diligently entered student names and held drawings at their schools in April, submitting the allotted number of qualified students as finalists to SCOE on April 19.
